Do you know that each fluttering beat of my heart
does so in a silent embrace to your soul,
traversing the oceans, riding currents upon waves
upon the gentle golden kisses of an eternal sun.
Each swarm of wings tickling through my soul
searches for your eyes in anticipation of your
knowing smile, each morning bird I hear singing
to the descending moon, serenading the ascending sun
is a melodic reminder of your honey curve voice
that thaws ice of old and lights the darkness long told.
Each droplet of rain, celestially born,
heavens tears cleansing…Gives clarity to my
thoughts and depth to my love of you.
